Celoxis Introduces Single Sign-On (SSO)

Are you finding it hard to remember multiple passwords for all your apps? We do too!

With an increasing number of essential applications required to execute daily work activities, it is hard and time-consuming to remember multiple login credentials. With our latest single sign-on (SSO) feature, Celoxis users need not remember yet another password to access their projects and tasks on desktops, smartphones or tablets. This greatly saves time and increases the security of your data access in the cloud.

What is SSO?

Single Sign-On (SSO) is a session/user authentication process that permits a user to enter one name and password in order to access multiple applications from a single authorization point, which is managed by an identity provider (IDP). Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML 2.0) is a leading industry standard for exchanging the authentication and authorization data that Celoxis will support as a service provider (SP).

This eliminates the hassle of logging into multiple applications and creates a seamless, integrated experience for the users.

How does it work?

When SSO is enabled for a particular company, all users from that company will be authenticated using the IDP credentials. Enabling SSO via SAML 2.0 means that user authentication is handled entirely outside of Celoxis.

Celoxis supports the following IDP’s:

  1. Google
  2. Salesforce
  3. Okta
  4. OneLogin
  5. Bitium

Before setting up SSO, please confirm the following:

  1. Your SSO Identity Provider (IDP) is SAML 2.0 based.
  2. All users and clients have unique email addresses. While your project clients will continue to access Celoxis using their Celoxis passwords, SSO requires unique email addresses within an account.

Next steps?

To activate SSO for your account, please contact us on support@celoxis.com. For more details about this integration please visit our help center.

    1. We have rolled out SSO on a beta basis and tested for some of the popular IDPs requested by our users. While we haven’t tested with Azure yet, we don’t foresee any issues in the integration because of the common standard.
